Re: Renault Laguna 2 - 1.8 16v Throttle Problem*FIXED*

I have a Renault Laguna 2 2002 F5R 2.0 IDE
It was working fine until one day whilst I was driving the dashboard lit up like a christmas tree and then the engine shut off. I waited for about ten minutes and then restarted. I managed to get home, approx 9 miles and had to restart about two or three times.

AA diagnostics = fuel problem. Changed my plugs (Bosch @ Halfords)

I have changed the fuel pump/filter unit that sits in the fuel tank, the complete fuel rail + injectors + fuel pressure regulator.
Same problem but now the car can start from cold, I can leave it idleing for about 15 minutes reving problem...then there is a moment when the engine is hot and the SERV + management + a few others and it shuts off. At that point I can restart but the vehicle goes for about 50 yards and shuts off.
I have searched the forum but I have not been able to find a similar topic, pulling my hair out, can someone please help!
